PowToon Animations -Grades 10 & 11

Students planned and created an original PowToon from scratch. The goal was to utilize sound in an intelligent way.
Their options were: A.) Make a “How To” Video With Voice-over. *Teach us how to do something or educate us on something.  B.) Make a Music Video for Original Music or a Soundscape YOU Created C.) Take Your Recent Soundscape Project and Add the Visuals.

Mary -Grade 11

“For this project, I wanted to create a mixed-media type of video so I used two mobile apps, royalty free audio and visuals, my own photographs and audio, and hand-drawn sketches. I used Pics Art and Line Camera to sketch the visuals while the audio was recorded raw in a bathroom. Then, I used Wondershare Filmora to add the lyrics and sync the visuals with the audio. I hope it made you feel something (this is 9 hours of patience). :’)”


Hailey -Grade 11

This is an animation about myself. I used video show, PowToon, and some royalty free music found in PowToon. I sketched each of the pictures and recorded my own voice too!”

Soundscape Projects -Grades 10 and 11

Students were given the inspiration and freedom to create a project that utilizes only sound. They worked with or created original music, sound effects, voice-overs, and manufactured sounds. Soundscapes can be a narrative story that only uses sound, it can be abstract, it can be experimental, or it can be musical, or it can be a combination of all of these.

John -Grade 11

“The world was hers for the reading.”

-Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Hi! My name is Zayda. I was born on February 9, 2003, and I’m 15. I was born in New Jersey in the US, but I’m Filipino. I’ve been in Myanmar for eight years, almost nine. However, I still can’t speak Myanmar. I can speak Filipino and English fluently, and I used to learn ASL by signing to songs. I stopped, but I’m planning on taking it up again. I have a twin sister, my mom, my grandparents, three uncles, five cousins, and eight aunts.

Social Media Graphics -Grades 8, 9, & 10

In ICT class students found some favorite quotes and learned to present them in visual form, in particular for sharing on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Students focused on message clarity, graphic dimensions, font choices, contrast, layout, choosing imagery that supports the text, color scheme, and impact.

Here are a few examples from grades 8, 9, and 10: (*Click to enlarge)
